Yes I intend doing that - good to know alternatives for the Mac exist

The MacPorts version is one release behind the dmg file;  I went for the
MacPorts one as I assumed  it would be more likely to work with Digikam

That's a very good tip, and works - thanks!
I was running Digikam from the 'dock'; I've now put the full command in a
shell script and can run that from the Applications folder and it then does
indeed pass the full path info through to Digikam so the 'blend bracketed
images' tool does load.

I also can run the 'panorama tools' application stand-alone by using the
same method, ie running


I'm still not sure why I don't get the 'Stitch images'  Tools item
displayed, since that's supposed to be in 2.1.1 though.
